New Updated 2023 Toyota Corolla Lineup!
2023 Toyota Corolla Lineup – Overview
In 2023, the Toyota Corolla will offer new hybrid grade levels with all-wheel drive as an option.
The 169-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is the only option for non-hybrid Corollas as the 139-hp 1.8-liter engine is no longer available.
8.0-inch infotainment screens, updated LED headlights, and slightly modified front and back fascias are some further minor cosmetic improvements for the new Corolla.
Even though the current 12th-generation Corolla is only two years into its life cycle and is celebrating its 54th birthday (in the United States) this year, the Corolla will receive significant equipment and powertrain updates for 2023.
To support its five gas-only trim levels for 2023, Toyota kills the Corolla L’s 139-hp 1.8-liter engine and replaces it with the desired 169-hp 2.0-liter.
However, the 1.8-liter gasoline engine from the Corolla hybrid is still in use, and it now comes in additional SE and XLE trim levels, as well as an all-wheel-drive option for hybrid SE and LE vehicles.
Although Toyota hasn’t specified how much, it claims the other rear-mounted motor for all-wheel-drive Corollas would enhance horsepower output.
The modern front-drive Corolla’s 1.8-liter engine and 71-hp motor combine to produce 121 horsepower, equal to the Toyota Prius e-AWD.
However, it’s unlikely that the upgraded system would match the all-wheel-drive Corolla Cross hybrid’s claimed output of 194 horsepower because the crossover will utilize a larger 2.0-liter engine. Both front- and all-wheel-drive hybrids will use a 1.8-liter engine.
While the 2022 Corolla hybrid achieves a combined EPA-estimated 52 mpg with front-wheel drive, the Corolla Cross hybrid is predicted to score 37 mpg.
The sedan and hatchback receive slight cosmetic updates, such as new chrome accents on the rear bumpers and reworked grilles.
Along with adding a new set of optional 18-inch Graphite-colored wheels, SE and XSE models also have a rear diffuser to highlight a sporty image.
Both body types are available with new paint. In place of the dark Black Sand Pearl from 2022, sedans now come in Underground and Midnight Black metallic.
In addition, the hatchback now comes in the previously sedan-only metallic Blue Crush color and a new shade called Inferno.
Every Corolla now gets an updated 8.0-inch infotainment screen, and Toyota has improved the visuals on all-digital gauge cluster display models.
In addition, the larger 7.0-inch instrument cluster in the Corolla XSE and XLE has also been updated.
A newer version of Toyota Safety Sense is used in the 2023 Corolla, enhancing several already impressive standard driver-assist features like
- Forward-collision warning.
- Automated emergency braking.
- Lane-departure warning.
- Lane-keeping assistance.
- Adaptive cruise control.
- Optional adaptive headlights.
- Front and rear parking assistance.
Before the new Corollas go on sale, more details regarding pricing, fuel efficiency, and hybrid horsepower are anticipated later this summer.
